This is my favourite coleslaw. The dressing is much lighter than the usual coleslaw dressing. It comes from Anne Lindsay's "Smart Cooking".

This was a great change of pace that I was happy to serve for a friend who hates mayo-based slaw. I made it with a red cabbage from my CSA box, which made it absolutely gorgeous to look at! I think I may have oversalted it at first, because just before serving I felt I needed to add a few spoons of sugar to balance the flavor. Turned out great! Made for Veg Swap 36.

As we were eating this I realized I forgot to add the lemon juice so I quickly stirred some in. Served with portabello mushroom burgers, fresh plums for a yummy but easy Saturday dinner. I used both red onion and scallions and wish I had some red cabbage on hand to add but didn't. Most of the ingredients were from our CSA box, too. Thanks for posting. Reviewed for Veg Tag/July.
